As a creative person, I love the color pink. So I actually named my property management company P.I.N.C. Management. Back then, most property management companies were run by men, and I knew I wanted to stand out, so I called it PINC Management. People In Neighboring Communities. Branding was easy, pink.
I have dropped the dots between each letter. I have passed on my business to my daughter, who continues to grow the company. When I started Women Empowering Women Now, I continued using the pink color to help carry on the branding.
I still love the color pink. It is my go-to color in almost all my artwork. So then, why am I titling this blog post, Black?
Lately, I have been thinking about how I can simplify things around me. I look at clutter and see what I can release, but I want to update and remove some of my clothes. I’m thinking about changing out my clothes, paring down and wearing black and white only. I think it will simplify getting dressed and make shopping so much easier.
Whenever I read about someone who wears only black and white clothing, I immerse myself in their story and it motivates me to do the same.
But even taking it a bit further and extending it to furniture, bedding, dishes, etc. It’s funny, as I write this, I am looking around my house, and I guess the process is already started! It’s incredible how the mind works! I can see it in the vision books I have created.
So I guess I am going to start with my wardrobe. First, I will go through my current clothes and remove anything I have not worn and some items that don’t fit my new black and white theme. Then, I will continue the cycle of removing a piece of clothing after I purchase a new piece.
I am going to give myself a year and will do an update in 6 months with check-in blog. The goal is to now start wearing those colors every day. It might take me a few weeks to get to that point, but I already envision my new closet!
Wish me luck!
